Oia, Santorini – Postcard Perfect!

Santorini in Greece used to only be a volcano, but is now the most visited Greek island. You probably come here for Oia, the sunset view, and the picturesque backdrop.

Santorini does not boost the same beach opportunities as it neighbouring island Naxos, but there are beaches here as well, and could as well be a good base for staying in Greece as the port is a busy one with ferries to both Naxos and Mykonos from here.
